    Watch Michael Sam’s Emotional Speech at the ESPYs


    “Great things can happen if you have the courage to be yourself”




    Michael Sam, the first openly gay football player to be drafted by the NFL, gave a powerful speech about being true to oneself during his acceptance speech for the ESPYs Arthur Ashe Courage Award in Los Angeles.

    The defensive end, who made history after being drafted by the St. Louis Rams earlier this year, began by quoting the late tennis star Arthur Ashe: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

    “Those are words to live by, whether you’re black or white, young or old, straight or gay,” Sam said, holding back tears.

    Sam told a story of speaking with a woman who was considering suicide rather than come out to her loved ones. “When we spoke she told me that she would never consider hurting herself again and that somehow my example would help,” he said to a round of applause from the crowd.

    “To anyone out there, especially young people, feeling like they don’t fit in and will never be accepted, please know this: great things can happen if you have the courage to be yourself.”

    It was a great speech. He said a lot in just a few simple statements.

    He isn't as good as he thinks he is and I think the Ram's knew it but had to take him anyway. He did improve some during preseason not enough for a spot on the squad!

    Yea...he played. That is what preseason is all about...a few weeks of try outs to make the team. My daughter's boyfriend is a Ram's fan, and he said he isn't that good of a player, either.

    I think he's good enough to play in the NFL (I saw that game against the Browns and he did very well). I think it's just because the Rams are really stacked in that position and don't need a fifth man on their depth chart. I think he'll get picked up by someone.

    I'm just going off what a few friends said about his skills on the field. I guess time will tell. We had a local kid that played in the NFL for 2 years and did well,...but got cut and never did hook up with a new team. It is a business and you sure have to leave it all out there. So many talented players...and so many spots, I guess. Good luck to him. He seems like a really nice kid.


    Edit: I just read that the Cowboys may take him on the practice team. Good for him!

    Since the Cowboys dumped him,...wonder if he will prove he is good enough to land another team?

    Michael Sam Confirms Engagement To Vito Cammissano With Vatican City Proposal Photo

    Michael Sam Confirms Engagement To Vito Cammissano With Vatican City Proposal Photo


    Michael Sam confirmed reports he'd gotten engaged to longtime boyfriend Vito Cammissano in a Jan. 16 tweet.
    Sam, who made history in 2014 as the first openly gay man drafted by the NFL, tweeted on image of himself dropping to one knee in front of Cammissano atop St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City.




    Michael Sam ✔ @MichaelSamNFL
    Follow

    @Vitcamm Thank you for saying yes

    Cammissano responded with a separate tweet of his own:

    Vito @Vitcamm
    Follow



    The location's significance didn't gone unnoticed by TMZ. Given that the Catholic church is opposed to same-sex marriage, the news outlet deemed the proposal "an act of defiance."

    Earlier this month, Page Six and TMZ reported that Sam and Cammisano had gotten engaged during a visit to Europe, where they'd been vacationing since Dec. 30.

    As news of Sam's NFL draft broke last year, the pair made headlines when they shared a passionate kiss that was nationally broadcast by ESPN and other media outlets.

    In an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired last month, Sam said he hoped to marry Cammisano someday.

    "I think if someone wants to spend the rest of their lives with another person, by all means, do that," Sam said. "It's all about equality."

    Congrats, gentlemen!
